NBC cancels Lipstick Jungle

The same day NBC gave the heave-ho to My Own Worst Enemy, word came down that the network's Lipstick Jungle had also been booted from the schedule, says Variety. Rumors had been swirling for a few days about the drama's future, but sources say it's a done deal now.

The cancellation of Lipstick Jungle probably doesn't come as a surprise to most. The show was banished to Friday nights to scoot cop-drama Life over to a more favorable slot not too long ago, basically signaling that NBC had given up on Lipstick Jungle. If last year's television schedule had been strike-free, Lipstick probably would have puckered up for the last time a while ago, but many 2007 fall shows were saved due to the unusual conditions and were fighting to stay alive.

All 13 episodes of the second season of Lipstick Jungle have been shot, but it's unclear if they will ever air. It's also unclear what NBC would put in Lipstick's stead on Friday nights should the network pull it altogether.

Wait, so this means no more Lindsay Price on television? Nooooooooooooo! Sound off below, Lipstick Jungle fans and haters!

I love Lipstick Jungle! If you love Sex & the City you should love this one too! I hope NBC doesn't make a mistake by cancelling this show.

I am not surprised. But as a Project Runway fan I have to ask: did Brooke Shields ever wear that ugly outfit that Keith made for her? I hope not!

If this happens it just shows that NBC wants to suck! Lipstick Jungle is great. And for those of you who never watched it...do yourself a favor and watch it before you review it. Guys will probably never get it, (they rarely ever do anyway...) but women will love it. Watch it from the beginning, the only smart thing NBC has done has left full episodes on line to view, watch it froms start to present and you will be hooked!

I'm not really surprised - the show as okay for a bored watch but as a long lasting TV series - I just didn't like the characters. Why though are so many shows getting cancelled so early on? I mean shows like JAG weren't a hit until the 4th to 5th series - it takes time to make a decent show.

So many shows I like get canceled, first the Ex List and now Lipstick Jungle. And then of course all the shows I liked over the last 10 years that were canceled too soon. It still annoys me that Joan of Arcadias old time slot given to Ghost Whisperer is still on the air and I still have to worry about Medium being cancelled which is a much better show as well.

The show was okay at most. But it was a good diversion from all the cop shows on TV today. But I have to say the Brooke Shields was horrible in this show...terrible acting...or it could have been the writing.

I must say im not surprised. They probably would have gotten axed last season if it wasnt for the strike. I watched this show on and off, it was entertaining at time but nothing spectacular and clearly with a network like NBC thats not good enough.

NBC - how could you do this to the fans? Just because the ratings are not high does not mean people are not watching this show. Nobody watches tv on tv anymore. Everything is available online. You can't judge it from tv ratings! Please revise the decision!!!!

money, money, money is all NBC cares about...not the loyal fans who follow these small shows that soon become Massive..ie: SATC...24!

I still really can't believe it. I really like the show. It stands out, it's not about teens it's about adults and life. Not adults investigating, going to court, working in a hospital or living these absurd stories in Wisteria Lane. Just about life! The actresses are awesome and I mean common...? Shooting in NYC, it's just an amazing show. I do feel that the show is actually really "starting" in the last couple of episodes, cause it is just good and very well played! It sucks so much that it doesn't get another chance! I just really hope NBs has some dignity left to air the episodes that have been shot!

I am upset. I like this show a lot. Everytime a great show comes along it gets booted. I guess it's because all people want is the reality show crap thats polluting the networks nowadays.

They could air Merlin on Fridays (I think it's NBC that picked up the BBC drama). It goes better with Crusoe.

Sigh...another one of the shows I like bites the dust. At LEAST air all episodes and not just release them on the website since that is not readily accessible to everyone. I will miss Kirby :P

Big surprise? I think not. When NBC decided to move this to Friday night in exchange for Life, they banished it to purgatory. The only real question was how long its' stay of execution was for.

I'm so pissed that NBC is cancelling this show!! It's the only show they have that I still watch besides SVU. Young women my age (early 2o's) need a good show like this. It fills a void from no longer having Sex and the City! And if NBC had anyone running things that knew what they were doing they wouldn't put a show like this on FRIDAY NIGHTS! Your demographic is going out Friday nights and tivo'ing! I've always been an NBC girl but if they cancel this show and especially if they don't air the rest of the episodes I'm going to have to find another network to watch! At least ABC has fun sexy shows about women like Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives. But Lipstick Jungle was even better than those shows! :( So sad!

I am gutted that this programme has been cancelled as I have enjoyed every episode and i dont think it has been advertised very well.

I dont think it would be fair for the network not to air the rest of this series 1 as some of us have watched it religiously.

Also what will we do without the beautiful Robert Buckley (Kirby Attwood) to look at!!

It tried to be Sex and the City, I think - that was its downfall. But it was a good show and deserved a better chance.
